There are no White Sox-Cubs territorial restrictions. The Giants and A's have territorial restrictions between them because the A's granted the Giants the South Bay (San Jose) in an agreement between the two teams. The White Sox and Cubs have no such agreement. The White Sox predate radio and television. The Cubs even played home World Series games at Old Comiskey Park before America's first commercial radio broadcast.

But one of the reasons the Cubs have long been regarded the glamour team in Chicago, outside if not inside the city, is that they play in a more fashionable part of the city. This was true in relative terms even before the Cubs' neighborhood was particularly fashionable. The Cubs moving out of the city would be a longshot. The Cubs moving south of the White Sox would be inconceivable.
